Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month was established by Congress in 1987 to celebrate the achievements of women in American history. Each day this month, we will recognize women from America and other parts of the world who have made important contributions to humanity.

Dr. Mabel Ping-Hua Lee

Mabel Ping-Hua Lee (1896-1966) was an academic, suffragist, and religious leader. Born in Guangzhou, China, Lee moved to the United States at age 9 (where her father already lived as a missionary pastor) after receiving an academic scholarship. She was an excellent student who earned degrees at Barnard College before becoming the first Chinese woman to get a PhD in Economics from Columbia University. Lee was also interested in women’s rights and was an active suffragist by the time she was 16, despite the fact that the Chinese Exclusion Act barred Chinese immigrants from obtaining citizenship and thus voting rights. After her father’s death, Lee took over his leadership of the First Chinese Baptist Church in New York City and worked for the rest of her life to improve the rights and status of the Chinese-American community via a variety of social services, including education and healthcare.

Don’t forget you must sign in and out even if you have parent permission to leave! You will serve detention if you forget. We need to know if you are on campus. Thank you!!!

If you need the links to the at-home or return request forms, please email Ms. Rorey: Remember that you should expect to wait 24 hours before you are approved by the school. Therefore, do not submit the request late in the evening or early in the morning and assume that you will immediately have permission to attend online or return to school. Thank you!


Please help us stay healthy so we can continue to be together!


Thank you so much for being diligent about wearing your masks! A few of you are still having trouble and for clarification, here is the process for you:
1. A faculty member will give you a warning.
2. After the warning, that faculty member will infract you and you will serve detention. This will be communicated to your parents as well.
3. After you serve detention, if another infraction occurs, you, your advisor, and your parents will meet with Mrs. Zalac and there will be escalated consequences.

Clubs meet Wednesdays 9:15-9:45! Look out for an email from your club leaders!
